Opposition Demand Referendum at Kenya Rally

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy has abandoned demands for national dialogue, and told supporters at the Saba Saba rally - held on the July 7 anniversary of protests for multi-party democracy in the nineties - that they want a national referendum. The rally, organised by opposition leader and former prime minister Raila Odinga, was aimed at addressing the cost of living, corruption, and crime and insecurity, such as the weekend attack on the coast which left more than 20 people dead.
